We were fortunate enough to be joined for the evening by the very talented girls from the Geraldine Lamb School of Dance.
The evening was planned around the use of second-curtain flash, this allowed us to capture some movement along with freezing the action and thus adding some dynamic aspects to the shot.
Of course, with multiple photographers all lining up for a shot we could not use the obvious approach of controlling the flash with the camera as this would only allow one person to shoot at a time. To get around this, we decided to use some good old-fashioned time management, with one person in control of the flash... a shout to ask the girls to start their dance move, at this point the photographers would also start their exposures, and at the agreed point we would fire the flash.
While this is certainly not a perfect solution, we had it timed well enough by the end of the evening so that everyone was getting shots they were happy with!
